I've been through every setting in FF numerous time and no matter what combination I use the shadowing shown below in the graphic continues. I've used other browsers and programs and FF is the only place where it occurs. Can I please get some tech support help? Please?

Hi, the backup files listed on the Restore menu are complete snapshots of your bookmarks for that date, and not limited to the new ones added on those dates. Do you want to physically delete the full backups from disk?

If you want to view/delete your current bookmarks added during a certain period, here are the steps for that:

Sorting Bookmarks by Date Added

First, make sure you have the Added column in your Library window (called up by Manage Bookmarks). To add a new column to the display, right-click any existing column heading and check the column on the little drop-down list.

Next, if you aren't sure which folder the bookmarks are in you can do a general search in the upper right corner (entering http will match most bookmark URLs).

Then click the Added column heading to sort by that column. This should group together the bookmarks added on a particular date so you can review and delete the ones you don't want.

Does that work on your Firefox?

No because I do not have an "Added" column on the Library window called up by "Manage Bookmarks." YES I would like to "Physically delete (permanently get rid of) "the full backups from the disc." I have yet to see a "delete" tab anywhere in this version of Firefox (92.0). I would gladly revert to an earlier version if it eliminated the current "restore bookmarks" list. How do I do it?

I have been trying to log on to my router page for months! I was able to log-on once only. I have tried everything, with no luck. It seem as though Firefox is using AI within the browser for certain things... Why isn't there a better way to log-in to the Browser Page for using your router? it should not be so complicate being that many people use them.

Since version 98, Firefox still saves files in the designated Downloads folder, even if I just want to open them. This new behavior keeps cluttering up the Downloads folder with unnecessary garbage. What I want to have in there is what I choose to download myself, not some temporary files. That's what the Temp folder is for.

The problem https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1370409 is marked as closed, unfortunately with no fix. Will anyone be addressing this yet, or do users have to get used to it?

I, after a few months, chose to switch back to version 97.0.2 I will no longer accept updates regardless of new security patches. Unfortunately.

I can play videos and audios on another browser or files stored on my computer, but just now I cannot on Firefox. I saw the FAQ explanation about Windows 7, but I have been using Firefox for years including just hours ago using Windows 7. Why would this happen right now? Did some new version just get installed? If so, can I return to the prior version and turn off the automatic update?

Thanks, Phil

need to recover bookmarks WITHOUT using Mozilla standard proceedures - had catastrophy

My 11y/o Win7 Pro x64 based water cooled monster finally failed taking the Intel DX79si m/b, the PNY Nvidea GTX980 and 2 of the 8 - 8gb mem sticks with it. The 16TB and 8TB add-in raid cards survived thank god. Also salvaged was the 250GB Samsung EVO SSD "C" drive. It was cloned to a duplicate the 1st day of every month. (No, it hasn't been overclocked in 8+ years, and even then I had the shut down temps set @ 50c). New m/b, processor, video card, memory, and unfortunately, Win10 Pro x64. All do in Friday. :-(. This old (76) man is gonna have to learn all over again:-( ( 'cept this time it's air-cooled and VERY conservative :-) )

My problem is the several hundred bookmarks I had in Firefox (I'm a LONGTIME user. I DON'T want to loose them. I've got the salvaged "C" drive SSD in a mini-dock (D:/ in the laptop) and I'm looking at them on my laptop (also Win7 Pro x64 based) ALL the files appear to be there at the time of the failure. I've already copied a bunch of the files from it so I'm not shut off completely. When I try to use the Mozilla feature to transfer them, it appears it want's to re-install & rewrite Firefox on the D:/ drive. NOT good. Isn't there a single (even multiple) file(s) that can be copied to C:\ so I can disconnect the mini-dock and THEN "import" them?

THANK YOU !!!!

Why, why, why do the devs keep pushing asthetic design changes that user obviouslly relly don't want? You got $450 million from Google, so maybe you're doing it on purpose to drive FF users away.

Remember when FF had over 25% market share? And now you're at less than 3.5%. That's because you keep messing with the FF interface. Take for example you're unwanted … (read more)

Remember when FF had over 25% market share? And now you're at less than 3.5%. That's because you keep messing with the FF interface. Take for example you're unwanted chunky new double spaced menus and bookmarks. Everybody hates them. You know that. Why not listen to the last of the FF users?

Why not give use end-users a voice in how Firefox looks? Let us OPT OUT of cosmetic design changes. I've never been asked my opinion in a survey and you killed-off the FF feed back feature. Why? Because too many people don't like what your doing? Since Google essentially owns you now, are trying to kill off FF for them? Because you're doing a great job of it!

LasVegasRich@gmail.com Windows 7 Pro PC. Mozilla Firefox. DuckDuckGo search engine. ExpressVPN.

When I try to Forward a gmail post with either a CC: or BCC: Command, my Contacts List doesn't load. Initially, I see an "X" in the right-hand corner

followed in less than a second, by another "X" superimposed over the first one. What might be causing this? I (reluctantly) loaded Google Chrome and made it

my default browser, after which, my Gmail worked properly. Assuming, then, that the problem is being caused by the Firefox connection to the Google servers,

I uninstalled Chrome with the Revo Uninstaller Pro and reviewed the Firefox settings.

My Firefox Extensions are thus: AdBlocker for YouTube, Disable HTML5 Autoplay, DuckDuckGo Maps, DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials, Enhancer for YouTube,

ExpressVPN, HTTPS Everywhere, LastPass, Malwarebytes, Online PDF Editor, Pinned Google Calendar, Return YouTube Dislike, SponsorBlock for YouTube, Video

DownloadHelper, and YouTube High Definition.

My Security Suite: Windows Defender, Malwarebytes Premium, SuperAntiSpywarePro, CCleaner Pro.

I'm interested in listing what bookmarks are being synched. You'd think that's the dumbest question on earth. Obviously, just look at my bookmarks Ctrl+Shift+o. There they are. But that's not what I'm asking. I want to see what has been stored on the Mozilla site in the way of bookmarks. I want to see what Mozilla will send to a second device when I get on that second device & tell the Firefox on the second device to synch. And not just bookmarks. I want to see everything that will get downloaded onto the second device when it synchs. I suppose it depends partly on what the second device is: PC, phone, something else. But that doesn't change my question. I'd like to list what is on the Mozilla site in the way of synching data. It's all well & good to say it's doing what it needs to. I think I'm in the trust but verify camp on this subject.
